It has been some time since we updated the community regarding the threat to the future of Tarad Hill, aka Bunny Meister’s Farm, one of the truly iconic and historically important farms in the Marshallton area. As you remember, the farm was put up for sale by the current owner in the Fall of 2020. Since then, there has been an enormous public outcry expressing the importance of its conservation. Marshallton Conservation Trust has also expressed its strong opposition to the development of Tarad Hill and has been assured that the goal of West Bradford Township is this property’s
conservation. At this point, the parties, Brandywine Land Holdings Trust (the property owner) and West Bradford Township, remain in discussions with the goal of agreeing to the parameters and cost of placing a conservation easement on all the remaining unprotected land on this 136-acre farm, which includes approximately 54-acres of pristine countryside.

Save the Date: Memorial Day Parade

It Takes a Village
As we face the increased challenges to our community–the effect of an increasing number of weather events on our local roads and bridges as well as the threat of development to iconic farms like Tarad Hill–we know that we cannot do it alone and are grateful for your continued support. We have a very special community and together we will continue to work toward enhancing the quality of life of our village and beyond for generations to come. Together we can preserve the past, protect the present, and plan for the future.
